Mobile County Commission Seeks Proposals for Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds
MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (Sept. 27, 2021) – Commissioners Merceria Ludgood, Connie Hudson and Randall Dueitt seek proposals from agencies, nonprofit organizations, private entities and local governments for project funding through Mobile County’s $80.14 million American Rescue Plan Act allocation.
The deadline for priority consideration of proposal submissions is 5 p.m. Oct. 25, 2021.
This allocation comes from the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. These funds will be used to continue the County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic while investing in initiatives for a strong economic recovery and reducing demand for state taxpayer dollars used for recovery efforts.
PDFs of the application, eligibility requirements and other information related to the proposal submission are available at https://www.mobilecountyal.gov/mobile-county-commission-the-american-rescue-plan-act. Printed copies of the proposal submission form and eligibility rules are available by calling 251-574-INFO.
To be considered for funding, proposed projects must be focused on or located in Mobile County and demonstrate they are an allowable use under American Rescue Plan Act guidance. Submitted proposals will be reviewed by Mobile County for fiscal impact, eligibility, and alignment with County priorities.
